Being a blogger means that you are taking your own life, and opening up about it to the world. Whether you meant to or not, your personal thoughts and reflections on whatever topic you happen to be writing about are out there, for the world at your disclosure.
In an effort to connect more with my readers, I thought i would disclose some random fun factoids about myself. These are my thoughts, and mine alone-nobody is paying me to write them (haha, sometimes I feel like I should be writing that)
-I feel most inspired when I’m running. There are so many times that the LIGHTBULB will go off in my brain when I am out running and NOT near my trusty IPAD. This just makes me run home that much faster so that I can write my ideas down! Sometimes, on the run, I’ll even shoot myself a quick email with some bullet points before I forget! LAME I know. For instance-last Thursday, I got the inspiration for my “5 Funny Friday things” post while I was out running and dodging crazy drivers and scary dogs. I quickly pulled over (haha) on the shoulder of the road and jotted on the ‘notepad’ of my Iphone!!
-My favorite time of day is morning time. I LOVE summer morning runs when it’s nice and quiet and I’m the only one on the road. There is just SOMETHING about having a 10 mile run over and done by 6:30am. #iruletheworld. Now that I am back in school, I can’t run in the mornings because its too dark. Unless I hop on my treadmill…which is suuuuper boring compared to the awe inspiring beauty of natural light. Plus-there is NOTHING like the feeling of pounding the pavement and getting that sense of accomplishment when you have arrived at your destination after your run! so I guess I should add another thing onto this factoid list:
-I’m NOT a fan of running on the treadmill. I have one, its a necessity because I live in New England, and I would cry if it broke (one time that happened; it was awful). I use it when I HAVE to-like when I am too tired to force my legs to go faster and i let the treadmill do that for me, or if the weather is doing crazy things outside. #imasummergirl
-I really, strongly dislike bad grammar. Even more than that-I have been known to annoyingly correct my friends. Who wouldn’t want to be best friends with me?? I KNOW- I can’t think of anyone, either!!!!
-I get excited about like, EVERYTHING. You name it-I’ve been giddy over it. I think I’m the only person in the world who had a countdown til their anniversary- I was THAT excited to hit our first one! It just felt like a milestone!! My husband used to think this habit was cute. I think he is over it now. I have been known to randomly ask “ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT _______ “ Fill in the blank with ANYTHING and you have our typical day. His reply, always, is “I don’t get excited Nicole, you know this.” Oh, haha, oh look at that, yes I do indeed-y. I still ask-its cool. I swear.
-I am obsessed OBSESSED with buffalo chicken. Its pretty much always present in my life..even though..sometimes It gives me a terrible belly ache, and I will lie awake at times in agony, but I will know it was all worth it. It’s just one little food I cannot fathom giving up. And while we are at food obsessesions: also – Greek Yogurt ( I call it GroGurt), fresh veggies from my garden, sandwiches, and shrimp quesadillas. My friends have pointed out to me that once i LOVE a food-it is extra present in my life and I pretty much force them to love it too (you’re welcome, Wifey & BFF for your love of the GRO-GURT) Once, for my birthday, they were planning a trip to Sandwich, MA and we were going to have sandwiches when we got there. We ended up elsewhere-but i probably still got a sandwich wherever we went!
-I really like making themed drinks for whatever holiday/season we are near/in. Like last week- I found pumpkin liqueur in the store-you bet your buns i picked up two bottles so I can make awesome Thanksgiving drinks. #dontyouwishiwascomingtoyourthanksgiving
Run Free, Run Strong!
Enjoy your Huuump Dayyyyyyyy (come on, don’t tell me you don’t do that too)
